Appearance Bright deep gold with a tawny centre. Nose Sweet aromatics of fudge and muscovado sugar. Fruit compote and glacier morello cherries provide added complexity. Palate Rich dark and seductive. Remarkable flavours of stewed fruits and all-spice marry together with classical aged Oloroso and toasted walnut bread and chocolate orange. Conclusions Tremendously complex and long.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - Seductive nose of fine oiled leather, cedar, pipe tobacco, brown sugar, strawberry compote, and almond butter. Full-bodied and luxurious on the palate; the sherried notes of musky fruit and trademark nuttiness shine through with lifted acidity. A long and supremely balanced finish ensues. -2019 Ultimate Spirits Challenge (Excellent, Highly Recommended).April/2019
The famous GlenDronach 18 year old, now renamed Allardice, is the third expression in the GlenDronach core range. This exceptional single sherried malt is non chill filtered and of natural colour. Matured in the finest Spanish Oloroso sherry casks and bottled at 46%, this sublime richly sherried malt is truly unforgettable.
